Re: Raspberry Pi and music production

Well that's running headless sorted. Is there (can anyone please tell me) a way to send midi data across the network to the Pi?

Re: Raspberry Pi and music production

Just a (hopefully) useful note in case it happens to anyone else. I increased the memory split to 128 & jack stopped working. Put it down to 64 & it was fine.

Re: Raspberry Pi and music production

@autostatic: Thanks. I have managed to find and order a usb 2.0 version for less than an English pound: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Speaker-Audio-Sound-Card-Adapter/dp/B000N35A0Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1370548053&sr=8-1&keywords=USB+2.0+Mic+Speaker+5.1+Audio+Sound+Card+Adapter I'm afraid my ...

Re: linux USB interface

IO2 express has a choice of either two balanced or unbalanced audio inputs, each with its own volume knob. It also has phantom power. Each of the two channel also has its own insert. I have used it with several debian based distros as well as Debian itself. It works with alsa or jack so should conne...

Re: Raspberry Pi and music production

@ autostatic - what is the little USB soundcard you were using with your Pi please? It seems a great idea to have a second USB interface so the Pi can be used as a separate FX box etc when recording to my main machine. With rpi-update - doesn't that just affect the SD card? Couldn't you just clone y...

Re: UbuntuStudio and Alesis io/2 Express

Hi Infolix76 I am a guitarist but I tend to process through a line 6 pod & just record the completed sound. I know the main school of thought is that the guitar should be recorded dry & effects added afterwards but I found this counter intuitive -the amped up sound has to feel right, especia...

Re: Raspberry Pi and music production

I have just compiled hydrogen stable from source and got it to work with jack and then alsa (for some reason my initial attempt with alsa failed but it worked after running it with Jack*). You could not run much else, but this can turn the Pi into a stand alone drum machine with just internal sound....

Re: Raspberry Pi and music production

@ j_e_f_f_g Sorry - at the moment I am just after programmed beats. (I do have Midi drum pads & (perhaps more interesting) an old Casio Digital Guitar, so I might give your software a try at some stage but at the moment I have other fish to fry. It might also provide a lighter drum synth than Hy...

Re: Raspberry Pi and music production

I can run hydrogen with the on board audio using Qjackctl or Alsa. If you run 'top' you will see that there is plenty of CPU & RAM still available. If you start Hydrogen from a terminal either way there are loads of errors. I do not know enough to be able to use them constructively. I did try sp...

Re: Raspberry Pi and music production

@Autostatic: thankyou (I have a feeling I am going to be saying that a lot). The other alternative I might try is to try a sequencer such as Seq24 or non with fluidsynth. It is such a shame to be so close with Hydrogen. I wonder if it could be compiled in some way with unwanted features disabled to ...

Re: Raspberry Pi and music production

@ Shadow_7 - what I did was buy a powered hub that could also power the pi from one of its usb sockets, this made getting a hub effectively cheaper because you do not have to buy a psu. You lose a usb port on the pi connecting the hub &the one on the hub powering the pi, so you end up with four ...

Re: Raspberry Pi and music production

Hi Just got my Pi up and running with Raspian & Autostatics repo added (thankyou sir :D ). At the moment just trying to get Hydrogen working with the internal sound, It plays slowly & the notes sound too low pitched to me. I have tried with Alsa & Jack & tried changing Hydrogen's sam...

Re: help with small studio setup - taking it to a higher lev

I do not have all your answers but I have one hint - noise gates, hardware or software. When the sound gets below a certain level the gate closes and you have silence. This is a great way to filter out any hiss, hum, background noise etc.
